Paintings by Andrea Kowch
Paintings inspired by midwestern landscapes with layers of meaning for the viewer to decipher.
The stories and inspiration behind my paintings stem from life’s emotions and experiences, resulting in narrative, allegorical imagery that illustrates the parallels between human experience and the mysteries of the natural world. The lonely, desolate American landscape encompassing the paintings’ subjects serves as an exploration of nature’s sacredness and a reflection of the human soul, symbolizing all things powerful, fragile, and eternal. These real yet dreamlike scenarios serve as metaphors for the human condition, all retaining a sense of vagueness because I wish to involve the viewer in uncovering the various layers of mood and meaning to form their own conclusions, despite the fact that my main idea will always be present.To inquire about the works, contact Richard J.
